who am i?

who am i?

i’m the thief on the cross hanging next to jesus,
i’m the friend of Anne Frank’s that resorted to prostituting herself for a taste of chocolate.
i’m the girl in the back of the class only the teacher would date,
i’m the mother on the corner waiting for the bus in the freezing rain.

i’m the beggar asleep under the bridge, cuddling a rat,
i’m the child with the hollow eyes who still loves his mother when she lets him out of the closet to go to school,
i’m the dog chained up in the back yard of a family that won’t mow it’s lawn,
i’m the woman at the well that Jesus forgave but you never will.
